An integrated systematization has been advanced as one of the means to cope with the recent development in ironmaking technology and energy demend/supply situations. This has been made possible because the processing capacity and safety in operation have been improved due to the advancement of the computer technology; the conventional analog control has been replaced by the overall digital control and just a single large-sized computer now allows the control of process computers which used to be installed independently in each factory.
In the systematization, the construction work is proceeding with a view to reaching such a final goal as the realization of the unified control of the whole process in ironmaking works by means of a large-sized computer. As the first step, the construction of a new instrumentation system for a sintering factory has been made. This paper describes its function and effect.
